Could someone do some trees and bushes - please!
« on: May 09, 2016, 02:18:00 pm »

It certainly would add nice touches to a scenery, if we could plant trees and shrubs or at least having the standard tree billboards to place arbitrarily. Are there any free trees (not high poly) available?

There are plenty of 3D tree generators out there, some even offer quality setting that would let you have different LODs.
This one looks nice
http://arbaro.sourceforge.net/
The trick would be getting the game to handle the current billboard trees as the lowest LOD and getting the 3D model to look somewhat similar to the corresponding billboard. I'm far from having enough expertise to do any of this or to give you further details though.
The end result would have some limitations as the trees wouldn't be procedurally generated (they would all look the same), I'm also not sure what would happen with the rotation thing and the automatic re-sizing the engine currently does with the flat trees.
A good while ago someone placed some random 3D models into the game, they looked nice, but I believe it wasn't a replacement of anything, just hand-placed models. The official procedurally generated 3D trees made by the outerra team were shown as "in-development content" some time ago, the video must still be somewhere on the forum; it looked pretty fu**ing neat.

Trees are still available via the Textures folder, but who knows if they will be accessible in the future?

I think the user who did this video probably modded them from there.

It would be insane to watch this in VR world. No demo is better than this. Great work

I made one but wasn't satisfied with the quality because of bad source resolution.
I agree with you that we need this kind of tree.

Hi!

Just to be sure, backup first your       program files\outerra\anteworld\textures\trees\bb      folder, and replace with this one:

https://www.dropbox.com/s/dz7my7sn8u707tm/bb.zip?dl=0

new species:

- Coconut palm ("cocos_nucifera").
- Tamarack tree ("larix_laricina").

EDIT: DEPRECATED LINK. Download full seasons here:

Sorry for that. I'm using a different config. Replace the species.cfg with this one:

Ok, works. The tropics look much more tropical now! Thanks! Feel free to add more species. They are welcome!

great .. thank you very much for your time
we can hope that with more time to play with colors. a lighter green and a white trunk .. but for now is good .. I would say more realistic,, we only need someone contribution a brunette girl on the beach. I think the Paragua already had.

"podmas hope that with more time to play with colors. a lighter green and a white trunk"

 I see what you mean, but would imply having a texture for the whole trunk (30 mts. tall), so it can be darker near the roots and brighter near the tip. In this case, as I'm using pre-made models for the billboards,  is a tiled texture, so you see the same color in all the length.
